. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we're helping small businesses and companies that are investing here in the united states. that we take some of the money that we're saving as we wind down two wars, to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make critical investments. now, it ultimately is going to be up to the voters, to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top down economic policies that helped get us into this mess? or do we embrace a new economic patriotism, that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney, two minutes. >> thank you, jim. an honor to be with you and pleased to be with the president. i'm pleased to be at the university of denver, i appreciate the welcome and the presidential commission on these debates. and congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this is the most romantic place you could imagine,

, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the americans people. it has killed jobs. and the best course for health care is to do what we did in my state. craft a plan at the state level that fits the needs of the and then let's focus and get the cost down for people, rather than raising it with a $2500 additional premium. >> mr. president, the argument against repeal? >> well, four years ago when i was running for office i was traveling around and having those same conversations that governor romney talks about. and it wasn't that just small businesses were seeing costs skyrocket and they couldn't get affordable coverage. it wasn't just that this was just the biggest driver of our federal deficit, but it was families who were worried about going bankrupt if they got sick. millions of families all across the country. they had a preexisting condition, they might not be able to get coverage at all. if they did have coverage, insurance companies might impose an arbitr

the country. tremendous energy now, but i think here's where we were going into the debate. people like -- they said i like the guy, i like his family. he is a good person. he is not doing a very good job. the opponent, then the next question is, is the challenger up to it? is he the person we want? frankly, going into wednesday night, people had not answered that second question. romney had not made the sale. i think what you saw wednesday night was the first opportunity that the average person had to see these two candidates head-to-head for an extended period of time, and when they saw that, guess who won? romney won. he looked presidential, he had confidence, he had a plan. he was confident in that plan. the presidt was in a situation where he couldn't defend the last four years. maybe that's not because he is not a good debater. we know he is a good debater. he couldn't defend the last four years because you can't defend it. you can't defend not getting the job done. i think that's -- this has changed. yesterday's one last thing, candy. yesterday we had 150,000 doors being knocked

solar stocks, be now by romney last night the whole idea of green energy solar stocks getting a bump. nicole: we saw facebook, a lot of other stories. some would say romney is out. dave: the end of the trading they comes to pass and look at how stocks are finishing a. the dow is up 82 points. looks like it is trading on a higher side as we end the trading day. the s and p f ten points. a higher percentage average. nasdaq up half percentage point. and small and medium-size stocks getting a nice bump as well. all of the stock indices are in the green and the question whether or not there was a romney bump we will go into our stock analyst. let's talk about oil surging back after falling posting its largest 1 they% decline since 2000. and settling a little less than 4% but big movement. reinvigoration of the economy on its feet. interesting that people put more money, there was stock from a the ecb, and they would be euro printing. and giving some impetus to the rising gold but some say it is time to become too much bluster and dropping back a little bit after its recent run up.
